♪ >> wonderful! >> that's it for us, thanks for watching. "early start" begins now. the pentagon says the fbi uncovered between 20 and 30,000 pages of potentially between allen and jill kelly. the woman who triggered the petraeus probe after getting threatening e-mails from his mistress, paula broadwell. >> get this. "the wall street journal" reports the fbi agent who launched the petraeus investigation was removed from the case after it was discovered he sent a shirtless picture of himself to jill kelly. the agent who knew kelly sent the pictures before the investigation began. he was later removed from the investigation because supervisors were concerned the agent may have become obsessed with the case. >> and there's more. a team of fbi agents searching paula broadwell's home yesterday. eight to ten agents brought cardboard boxes and searched both levels of the house. the fbi confirmed agents were there but wouldn't say what they were looking for. >> obviously, a lot going on here. we have two reports. chris lawrence of the pentagon and brianna keeler in our washington bureau.
the pentagon is investigating e- mails general john allen traded with a florida woman. who is she? bob orr and john miller investigate. nancy cordes on the president's next cabinet. who's coming and who's going in the top jobs? the head of the specialty pharmacy linked to a deadly meningitis outbreak is called before congress. jim axelrod on t investigation. and they faced down a mass murderer. elaine quijano with the officer who was shot 12 times as he and his partner stopped a bloodbath. >> i confronted evil in the parking lot and evil was not going to leave. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. general john allen, the general in charge of the war in afghanistan, is under investigation tonight in connection with the same woman who helped bring down the director of the c.i.a., retired general david petraeus. now general allen's nomination to be supreme allied commander of nato is on hold. two of the top military men of their generation have been brought low by their acquaintance with jill kelley, a tampa socialite
current job as the man in charge of the war and we heard from secretary panetta off the pentagon and also jay carney, the white house spokesman today. he's kept the confidence of the president and secretary panetta. so he will keep his job. the war will go on as it has for the past 11 years. >> jennifer: okay. since the president and secretary panetta issued a supportive statement does that indicate his denial checks out? general allen has denied, of course, having an inappropriate relationship with jill kelley. >> what a lot of people here in town think it means is that if he broke some form of protocol or some military guideline, it wasn't enough to trigger a criminal investigation by the fbi or by other federal officials and so that's the reason the justice department and the fbi handed this matter over to the pentagon's suspected general for it to look into it. that still could have serious repercussions for general allen. by keeping him on, by not suspending him as they have other general officers accused of crimes
of billions in spending by ensuring the pentagon can pass an audit. mr. speaker, we face many challenges, but we must not allow our political crisis to create an economic crisis for millions of americans who are struggling. now is not the time to turn our backs on struggling families just to preserve tax give aways to millionaires and billionaires. we must come together to wage a war on poverty and end the war on the poor. and finally a 350 economists have said, we need jobs first. with recovery, deficit reduction will come by its own accord thanks to increased revenues in an improving economy. they went on to say that public outrage for jobs and recovery comes first, budget cuts only lead to a deeper slump. thank you, i yield the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlelady's time has expired. pursuant to clause 12-a of rule 1, the house shall be in recess one of the stories we are following across the c-span networks is the house and senate hearings on the attack on the u.s. consequence klatt -- consulate in benghazi libya. among those testifying today is the acting dire
as a rival. reports 20,000 e-mails between kelly and john allen. they have been handed over to the pentagon where they are being analyzed. i interviewed general petraeus and general alan several times. paula broadwell joined me for a conversation early this year. joining me from washington d.c., davidic nake a column else for "the washington post" and martha raddatz a senior affairs correspondent with abc news. two cbs colleagues, norah o'donnell my cohost and john miller correspondent at cbs news who is frequently with me on cbs this morning. i'm please to do have all of them here. we'll be joined by norah and john in just a moment. martha tell me about general petraeus. do you know him. what is it about this story that surprises you most? >> well, i have known general petraeus and covered him in war zones for about a decade and what surprised me most is he seems like a man who is so disciplined and so careful about his image and about his reputation that it was jaw dropping to me when i first heard it. >> rose: so the question is what didn't you understand about him? >> well, i mean i m
these days. take a look at some of the spending that he found buried inside the pentagon's budget. coburn said he found spending by the pentagon and other departments of funding studies of babies interacting with robots, the air force spending money on studying the color of dinosaur feathers and darpa spends $6 million on a study of storytelling techniques and the brain. coburn said he or she identified about $67.9 billion worth of spending that he thinks over ten years can be easily cut out of the pentagon budget. and i want to leave you with one of the other items that he found here. this was kind of a whopper to a lot of us here in the office. he found that the pentagon had financed a seminar discussion and the topic of that discussion was, did jesus die for the cling-ones, too? and it was a discussion of whether or not -- what the implications are for christianity if extraterrestrial life is discovered? those are your taxpayer dollars at work. >> eamon jarvis, thank you very much. >>> sure, obama care may guarantee you health insurance. but what good is it if you can't get any health
are hysterical. >> so is the pentagon but it is 10 percent to bring us to where we were in 2006 which adjusted for inflation was not a crisis year. they have gotten spoiled with years of luxury then when they cut the budget they scream to the heavens. john: leon panetta says it would be irresponsible, senator mccain and gramm, the draconian cuts represent a threat to our national-security and must not occur. >> it is not the best way but it could be useful o it will force us to make choice we try to be everything. deliver peace and prosperity to pretend every unstable country is the threat to an to bid the stable countries so we may have to reconsider and prioritize. john: obama talked-about the military being forced for things they don't want. i was skeptical but the tanks the pentagon says they have exceeded space and weight and power but the chief of staff warfare has changed we will never see a straight conventional conflict again but congress insists to buy more? >> it is built somewhere that is politically important it is built in ohio and 70 n. michigan keeps saying by more of them. >>
by the pentagon's inspector general for what officials describe as potentially inappropriate e-mails with one of the women directly involved in the case. nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell, has more on an ever-widening story. >> reporter: the scandal involving two very different women, tampa socialite jill kelley and petraeus biographer and former mistress paula broadwell ensnared not only petraeus but his successor. marine general john allen who took over from petraeus in afghanistan and is the president's choice to be supreme allied commander of nato forces in europe, a nomination now temporarily on hold. >> thank you for all that you have done, for me and for our precious daughters. >> reporter: the general is married with a sterling record. but on a flight to australia monday night, aides to defense secretary leon panetta disclosed a dramatic turn in the petraeus case. fbi investigators had uncovered what the pentagon called potentially inappropriate communications between the general and jill kelley whom he and his wife got to know in tampa and were revealing betw
. >> reporter: it turns out a pentagon investigation later concluded by mid 2009 there was no tactical or strategic value to the outpost the by then so many paid the ultimate price, including lieutenant ben keating, a gung ho former president of young republicans and son of baptist ministers. killed in november 2006. >> and you have to think to yourself all the stories that do get out there, how many thousands don't. you know, who sacrificed like those guys and their families have. >> you mentioned jake tapper on kimmel, right? >> yes. he's going to be on the "view." and last night. on kimmel. and the book comes out today. a very important and inspiring stories about the guys. >> great perspective to tell the stories. >> more from abc coming up next. stories. @ >>> this morning on "world news now" -- breaking developments in the widening scandal that's already claimed the career of former cia director david petraeus. >> the top u.s. commander in afghanistan is now being investigated in connection with this growing controversy. it's tuesday, november 13th. >> announcer: from abc news, t
allen, believes he's doing and has done an excellent job at isap. and i would rephrase the pentagon for the process underway with regards to general allen. >> reporter: now carney downplayed questions on whether this whole situation illuminates something about the culture of military leadership. he said these are two events seeming to say they are two isolated instances, but zoraida, he did say that the president was surprised, i guess that's not particularly surprising, to learn about general petraeus. and that's really as far as carney would go, saying he was very surprised and that was his initial reaction to learn of this situation when he first learned on wednesday. >> i know he called it an unwelcomed development as well. this afternoon the president will hold his first press conference in his second term, what do you expect him to focus on? >> reporter: what isn't he going to be asked about, that's the thing. he has not had a real press conference, i think you can say, a rather extensive press conference in months. he did one in the spring. a more extensive press conference.
the top military commander in afghanistan is being investigated by the pentagon for having inappropriate communications with jill kelley, the woman who first blew the whistle on broadwell's threatening e-mails. oh, boy, here we go. good morning. i'm mika brzezinski, along with joe scarborough, this is "way too early," the show that receives on average about a dozen inappropriate communications from donny deutsch every day. >> every half hour. it's a long story. by the way, shirtless as well. we will talk about that. >> that's on a good day. thanks for being up with us. shoot us an e-mail or tweet u us and let us know why you're awake right now. or do what jill kelley's twin sister does and text the word awake followed by your response to 622639. we'll read the best responses later in the show. >> you kids make sure if your dad sends an e-mail, the shirt stays on. okay? seriously. i'm tired of looking at your dad's bare chest. >>> this will be your cram session for this tuesday, november 13th. there's a lot going on today. >> yeah. >> i mean a lot. including new speculation on who could b
, learning more about questions about him, and the pentagon investigation, alleged behavior. does the president have faith that general can continue to lead the war in afghanistan during this critical period of time while under investigation? >> i can tell you that the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to the country as well as the job he's done in afghanistan. at the request of the secretary of defense, the president put on hold general allen's nomination as supreme allied commander of europe pending the investigation of general allen's conduct by the department of defense ig. the president remains focused on fully supporting our troops and partners in afghanistan that general allen led so ably for over a year. the president nominated general dunford to be the next commander of isaf reiterating comments that they should act swiftly to confirm him. >> accurate to say the president has full faith in general allen? >> he has faith in general allen, believes he's doing and has done an excellent job at isaf, and i refer you to the pentagon for the process u
to the pentagon, do you consider that to be inappropriate for a commander-in-chief when american citizens are under fire? >> well, i do think it is inappropriate. and i also think that the administration had in mind a certain scenario, that they were pushing. the idea, as we saw on five separate appearances by our u.n. ambassador over the weekend where the thesis was that this was a, was after all, a protest that had spun out of control. i think they had bought into a storyline that didn't match the reality on the ground, and it was very hard for them as a consequence to adjust to the fact that it was an al qaeda attack. but occurring on 9/11, it should been obvious to them, and certainly obvious to other consulates in the area that al qaeda was operating and indeed training, not far from the benghazi facility. gregg: congressman, what is the one thing you hope to learn today? >> well, when what i would like to know when the request was made for help who in the chain of command denied that help to our ambassador and to our team there on the ground. gregg: do you have suspicions? >> i do n
the pentagon. we're hearing so far there have been no official findings that broadwell broke any laws or engaged in criminal activity. why suspend her security clearance? >> well, you know, fran townsend is reporting just that, john, that all the indications are, from the laumt forces she's spoken to, not egregious violation. broadwell is a reservist in military intelligence with the army. and inside the military, a violation, even if it's so-called minor, of handling classified information, especially when you're a military intelligence analyst is quite serious. yes, the army has suspended her security clearance. i want to read to you the statement that the army put out. the army said, quote, the army has been cooperating with federal law enforcement authorities in this matter and those actions are ongoing. appropriate actions with regard to this officer's clearance and access have been taken. so now what we know is the military is also involved in this. analyzing what is going on, pulling broadwell's security clearance, at least for now. she is in the position of having to demonstra
at the pentagon. (cheers and applause) so now that the scope of the scandal has widened, how is the military going to respond? there's got to be firings! >> skwro *epb, a few symbolic firings is no longer going to do the trick. we have to do something about heterosexuals in the military. (laughter) we've got to get rid of them, jon! they have got to go. >> that is a drastic step. i don't know than that's the answer. it's a drastic step. >> no, absolutely not, jon. they've got to be banned. if we think about it, it was probably a mistake to let them in in the first place. traditional armies were always gay, jon. as demonstrated in this documentary of a spectacular group of ripped gay spartans repelling what was at that point a much bigger even gayer persian army. (laughter). >> jon: many straights have served honorably and have not cheated on their spouses. >> jon, read the bible. these people are incapable of monogamy. it goes all the way back to the garden of eden. it's like the old biblical saying goes: for every woman made from adam's fifth rib there's a guy in a garden who's tired of (bleep)in
. as painful as it may be, as difficult as it may be, the pentagon has to step up. they have to find ways to save money, too. and i think a lot of those on the left feel that we've gone too deep into education and other programs. let's make sure this is balanced from this point forward. >> senator, before we let you go, switching topics a bit, i assume that much of today's press conference or a lot of it, too much of it, will be preoccupied with the two co-stars of "you've got mail," general petraeus and paula broadwell, but it leads to a larger issue, many people think, and that is the repeated deployments of the american military to afghanistan following on iraq and the impact it has on service families left behind and the war itself, the lingering 12-year war. what's your view on all of this? >> mike, you put your finger on it. we ought to talk about the real cost of war. it is not just in dollar terms. it certainly includes the terrible loss of life, over 5,000 americans in iraq and afghanistan. it means those who came back with injuries and the impact on individuals and families afte
, what are you talking about? i'm open to looking at the pentagon budget. when you see the waste, fraud and abuse that's in the pentagon budget, we can't even at this point audit the pentagon. i think we need to -- >> i'm specifically talking about things like medicare, social security, medicaid. the kind of programs that people generally don't like to touch. >> no. we should not touch that. >> not at all? >> first of all, for medicaid, medicare and social security, these are programs that people have worked for. these are programs also that address those who are low income and who are poor. i don't believe that low income individuals and the most vulnerable in our seniors should be part of a deal. first of all, they're just living on the edge as we speak anyway. and so why should they have to bear the brunt of the cuts when we're talking about finding revenue to be able to really balance the budget, create a path toward deficit reduction? really reignite the american dream for everyone. i don't believe entitlement cuts that would affect the poor and seniors and low income individuals s
to a higher accounting. he has to bring it out. the pentagon will do that as well. the cia, the fbi, the president, all making sure that this is not swept under the carpet here. john, i do not know. when i saw him, these men are away for a long time. my stepfather was in the military. my first husband had a silver star in vietnam. i know what it is like for men and women to be separated. i feel sorry for holly and her family, but at the same time these men, they are not robots. host: diane, thank you for the call this morning. here is the editorial from "the wall street journal." it notes that "if the leaks are correct, the fbi was investigating him for months." host: edward, independent line, thank you for calling. caller: thank you for taking my call. i feel the general is an honorable man who made a mistake. we're all human and we all make errors. most politicians would not do that. that being said, i would like to make a comment about this benghazi thing. republicans have made such a big deal out of it. ronald reagan sent over 200 marines to their death and there was no public o
groups. the pentagon. there was a military unit in the area at the time. it was not delta forces as reported. but there was a military unit. i've been assured they did not hold prisoners. maybe the libyans picked him up an accused, we just don't know. >> are we not going to get answers on the invest because of th this? some want him to, but -- >> you know, why would the cia have a fire base in benghazi, libya? why was it not better protected? why did we not know that whole base was ringed by al-qaeda related militias and why did this investigation start in the first place because a harassment complaint to the fbi just never goes any way unless it's comarried with another piece of information and we don't have what that is. it's sensitive and that's why we're asking so many questions. >> and we're going to keep asking them until we get answers and bob, thank you very much for taking the time and suzanne as well. still to come, more on the scandal. just who is paula broadwell. and how did she get so close to the director of the cia? plus, an "outfront" investigation into the red cr
in his cabinet, before bob gates in the pentagon for the better part of the first term. i think he wants to do that again. his instinct towards not necessarily to hagel, although i think he is under consideration for one of the jobs, but it's a good time for the reboot and i think we're going to see that happen. >> it's a complicated reboot, right? we knew that clinton was leaving, geithner wants to go, we heard panetta, those were gives. as tom friedman says -- the whole middle east erupts in one giant sound and light show of civil wars, states collapsing and refugee dislocations as the keystone of the region syria gets pulled under and the disorder across the neighborhood and you were worried about the fiscal cliff. >> governor? >> i think john is right about the personnel changes. this is the time. every administration goes through it. if you're re-elected you're going to have this turnover and this is the best time for it. we didn't want it before the election. john is right you don't want it five months down the road when your second term is under way. i want to terry a bit too, if
to a pentagon probe of the top u.s. commander in afghanistan-- marine general john allen. he's under scrutiny for extensive communications with a tampa, florida woman. allen has denied wrongdoing. defense secretary leon panetta said today no other senior military officials appear to be involved. he spoke during a trip to thailand. >> i'm not aware of any others that could be involved in this issue at the present time. obviously as this matter continues to be investigated both on capitol hill and by the inspector general, i'm sure we'll have to wait and see what additional factors are brought to our attention. >> holman: panetta now has ordered an ethics review for military officers. he said he's asked the joint chiefs of staff to re-examine the training of senior commanders, to avoid similar incidents in the future. the 17-member nations of the eurozone have fallen back into recession for the first time in three years. from july to september the eurozone's economy contracted by a tenth of a percent. that was the second straight quarter of negative growth-- the technical definition of a recess
refer you to the pentagon for the process under way with regards to general allen. >> meantime, soledad, president obama will welcome dozens of business leaders to the white house today. some of whom support something he wants to do, which is increase taxes on the wealthy. obviously the white house is hoping that maybe that will convince some house republicans to budge on this a little bit. although i've talked to some republicans who say, don't count on that. soledad? >> all right. brianna keilar for us this morning. thanks, brianna. cnn's special coverage of the president's news conference will begin at 1:00 p.m. eastern time. wolf blitzer is hosting that, and we will obviously carry that for you live when it happens. want to talk a little bit more about the fiscal cliff. chief business correspondent ali velshi joins us. you heard brianna talk about this meeting with ceos about that. how much of that is pr and how much of that is really critical conversation? >> well, the very conservative leaders, and anti-tax leaders, have called the whole thing pr. they think it's giving the presid
a moment ago while reporting from our barbara starr at the pentagon that we're expecting that the, the, the retired general is going to testify that immediately there was the sense there was this radical islamist group that was responsibility but at the same time a stream of intelligence that might have suggested that there was this anti-islamic video that was playing a role in some way. what, what do you make -- that's what he ends up testifying, what do you make of, of, of that? >> well, you know, i think, soledad, that the american people really want to get to the bottom of this and get some answers. i think a lot of people are frustrated that we hear one story one day and another story another day. and i think, by the way, this isn't just republicans, this is republicans, democrats, independents, all across the country, saying what happened? we want the truth. we want to know to make sure that this doesn't happen again. i mean remember, four americans chied, and i think general petraeus and all of the others who have been out there in the past, talking about benghazi, need to come
of the pentagon. don't ask don't tell is historic. it was passed and that had full lot that is removed from our books. we have to remember that our men and women who fought and died to this country do not have equal benefits. there is a long way to go as it relates to the full benefits -- id cards, etc. there is a whole host of things so we need to make. as well as transgendered service. that is not a discussion. it is something that is important and needs to be addressed. all of these things we talk about -- there are real life people. it is not often you can pass a law that there are real life people that are immediately impacted and feel it. in this country, the vast majority of people live in places where they are treated as second-class innocence. a young person growing up in america -- look at the three places where people spend most of their time -- home, school, and church. they are rejected in all three. encourage people that they can grow up with the same dreams as their peers. these false and demonstrated actions and successes matter to real-life people. it is felt in this country. i
was in the united states last january he specifically wanted to pay a visit to the pentagon, which he did. so it indicates that xi i is not necessary just to himself from this kind of relationship. you may even see a kind of value added and identifying with it. at the way that china is trying to improve its advantage, if you will, is to present itself as a much more credible force in this context. now, with -- would've xi jinping be prepared to risk a major downturn in the u.s.-china relationship for all the reasons have been noted? i doubt this very, very seriously. but china has its date certain kind of claims that could very well we configured the regional environment for years to come, or at least enables china in its own estimation to better protect and assert its interests. so the question for the longer-term is how does the united states choose to react and respond. this is among the operative questions it seems to me that the obama administration is going to face in coming years. thank you very much for your time. [applause] >> so my second role is to be a discussed in bashing discuss
